Kid Peligro Jiu-Jitsu News . . . Andre Galvao talks Jiu-Jitsu Pro League

 

Current ADCC world Weight and Absolute Champion was recently confirmed in the IBJJF Pro-league event that goes down this December 8, 2012 at the Long Beach Pyramid. Since Galvao did not compete in the last Worlds this is his first chance in over a year to compete against the top BJJ'ers so we decide to check with him about his quick thoughts and expectations for the event:

KP- So you are going to be in the Pro League event?
AG- I am going to be there prepared and ready for everything!

KP- You are going to be back to the IBJJF competition mats, what do you expect for this experience?
AG-
I hope to do some great fights. this is a unique experience along side of many others I've had along my career. I am very happy and highly motivated.

I will be 100% ready to compete against all the top fighters in the World today. I believe this is going to be a great event and a great show, not only in the high quality of fights that will go down but also in the organization as IBJF always puts on great events with great presentation.

KP- What do you think about having a Pro Jiu-Jitsu league?
AG-
Our art is growing fast, faster than most I believe and this is a testament to our growth. I really believe the event will be great!
